SharePoint 2010 - Manage Site Access Requests

This article explains how a site administrator can manage access requests for their SharePoint site. To perform these steps, you must have been granted full control for the site.

When a SharePoint 2010 site is provisioned, access requests are configured to be sent to the email address(s) specified when the site was requested, but a site administrator has the ability to change this on each site within the site collection they administer. By default, when a sub site is created the same email address(s) that are configured on the parent site are used for access requests to the sub site. Often, in larger departmental sites, administration of sites is delegated to multiple individuals. Follow the steps below to change these settings.

  1. From anywhere within the site, select Site Actions > Site Permissions.

  2. The Site Permissions page displays. Select Manage Access Requests from the ribbon.

  3. The Manage Access Requests form appears. If not already checked, check the box to Allow requests for access and specify the email address to send requests to and click OK. Note that you can add multiple email addresses here, just separate each address with a semicolon.
    Configure Access Requests
    Note: With manage access requests configured users are able to click a link on the access denied page when they are unable to access content. If no email address have been configured for this site, the link will not appear on the access denied page.
